Watched Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive (1994) last night. It was… eye-opening. Surprised I didn’t throw up my dinner all over my laptop. Would have been a nicer sight than what I saw on screen. In any case, I’m thoroughly disgusted but and delighted. Well done, Peter Jackson. Thought I was desensitized to cinematic gore but you proved me wrong. How you ever got the gig directing The Lord of the Rings films after making this movie I’ll never figure out.
Im thinking of a #doublefeature of same #movie twice #braindead aka #deadalive the best #horrorcomedy #splattermovie #movie #comedy ever made is always worth watching twice. #peterjackson #lordoftherings #hobbit #splatstick
Day 27: Dead Alive (Brain Dead) (1992)
“Your mother ate my dog!”
“Not all of it…”
Director: Peter Jackson (yes The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit director, Peter Jackson)
Summary: After his mom is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey. She gets sick and dies, but returns as a zombie and begins devouring dogs, nurses, friends, and neighbors.
This movie is a ton of fun! It’s not scary in any way, but it is hilarious. I hope that after the Hobbit trilogy, Peter Jackson makes another Splatstick film like this. It would be great!!
But this one is great. It’s full of memorable and funny quotes, graphic violence, and hilarious situations.
“I KICK ASS FOR THE LORD!” -Priest.
It’s also one of the bloodiest films ever. The lawnmower scene alone used over 300 gallons of fake blood. With more than 5 gallons being shot out per second.
It had a couple of boring parts though, and the acting is eh. But it’s still a wonderful film. It’d be great to watch with friends any time of the year.
